Receiver deployments in urban Bergen (BOATS)
On May 27 we completed an expansion of the Bergen Telemetry Network in downtown Bergen. This array, affectionately named BOATS (Bergen's Ocean Acoustic Tracking System) comprises twelve receivers deployed in Puddefjord, Byfjord, and Gravdalsviken to track trout and wrasse movements for the next nine months. One receiver was deployed right in front of historic Bryggen, where we hope some of our fish will be detected. In June we will tag trout and wrasse around Møllendal and Gravdal and these receivers may even detect some of our trout tagged in the Osterfjord node north of Bergen if they venture into the city centre!
